The government of Turkmenistan has announced it will offer preferential fuel prices to all airlines that choose to use the country's airports for technical stops between Asia and Europe. According to the government's website, Cargolux (CV, Luxembourg) became the first carrier to enjoy such discounts on October 1, 2018.

The Luxembourgish cargo specialist uses Turkmenbashi as a technical stop with more than 20 operations per week.

The discounts also apply at Ashgabat, Turkmenabat, Mary, and Dashogus airports and are valid both for technical stops and scheduled operations.

According to the ch-aviation capacity module, Turkmenistan currently sees scheduled dedicated freighter services by Lufthansa Cargo, Turkish Airlines (operated by ULS Airlines Cargo), and Uni-top Airlines (operated by Aerotrans Cargo).
